Re: [Xen-devel] [PATCH] respin of mprotect performance patch

I made a few tweaks to your patch as follows:
As I see it we need to preserve the existing AD bits but additionally OR in the 
AD bits being passed in (see behavior of pte_modify(), where it preserves 
current AD in use of _PAGE_CHG_MASK along with ORing in newprot bits, which 
include AD bits (A at least).)
See update_intpte() for this change.

Also we need to remove cmd value from req.ptr in do_mmu_update..

Updated Linux patch is also included.

Let me know if I'm missing the point some how.
